Vanderbilt hosted VMI on Saturday for the second of their two game series. The Commodores improved their record to 2-0 with an impressive 5-2 victory over the Keydets from Virginia Military. Sunday's game was rained out, but VandyMania staffer Katy Hamlett submitted these photos from Saturday's game.

VMI couldn’t get past Vandy pitcher Jensen Lewis, who yielded only one base hit during his seven innings.

Rucker Taliaferro Taylor IV. The only thing that beats this short stop to the plate is his own name.

Transfer catcher from Duke, Brian Hernandez, is ready for VMI’s only base hit.

Sophomore Aaron Garza trots back to the dugout after grounding out in the third inning.

Now what did your mother tell you about stealing? VMI’s Sweppenhiser is out at second in the top of the fourth.
